“So wait...abortion is a constitutionally protected right, but if you're caught counseling someone to get one in a rape clinic, you will be prosecuted? Did I read that completely insane statement right?”

cybersleuth58 on Jul 1, 2013 at 09:00:15

“It's completely illogical...

But the right is allergic to science, and, by extension, logic in all forms.”

TuoulumneFlower on Jul 1, 2013 at 08:58:48

“Yes, you did.

I for one hope that every doctor in the state, every public hospital, and every rape crisis center proceeds to break these provisions at every turn.

Let these right wingers arrest dozens and dozens of health care providers, and remove funding from every public hospital in the State. Let's see them put their fascist plans into action, not just words on paper. A Republican wouldn't be elected in Ohio again for generations, if ever, if they did.”

“No they don't. Your comment is disingenuous at best. The proven reality is that more access to abortions leads to a decline in abortions.”

“Oh, well gee-whiz, lets disregard science, and medical and social research and simply go along with whatever this all-male panel devoid of medical experts deems appropriate.

I seriously cannot get over the lack of logic that anti-choicers have. If women were getting abortions before it became a constitutional right, then really, how effective is going back to banning it going to be? Not effective at all. Women will ALWAYS claim their right over their own body, regardless or whether or not that right is recognized by the constitution.”

“What if we ignore science one way, or the other, and let people make their own life choices?”

“Right. If Bush and Cheney managed to escape being prosecuted for what they've done, then I find it laughable that somehow Obama will face jail time for any of rights and freedoms of the people that his administration has violated.”

“So where are the RoundUp Ready Bees? I mean, Monsanto has a death grip on every other aspect of the food chain, why not go after bees, too. Then they can sue beekeepers who accidentally allow GMO Bees into their colonies, and so on and so forth.”

“Because if WE don't start taking up that responsibility, there will be no more people to take on those much needed careers that cost so much to attain. And frankly, if more people actually starting taking responsibility for their communities rather than thinking "me, me, me" all of the time, then they would being figuring out ways to reduce the cost of attaining those degrees so that the burden wouldn't lie so heavy across the board.

The type of thinking you are displaying is not only selfish and childish, it's also short sighted and useless in terms of building a stable, thriving society.”

“I wish I could fav this about a 100 times over. I've been beating this into anyone who will listen: it's not about people being unwilling to pay back their loans, it's about a previous generation too selfish to keep a good thing going, but too vain to admit they effed it all up for the rest of us.”

“please you have look 360 degrees around there is enough blame to go around remember we were always told go to college to really succeed!

I'm concerned 58 year old man who's dyslexic! I am still fighting to find solutions that is with an "S" because this problem is just too big now for one answer! I ask you to google ProjectTuitionReimbursement
I have a theory Trickle from the Middle Up and Down Theory it can be used in numinous ways the Project is loosely based on the Opportunity Maine Tax credit and the $5250 Tuition Reimbursement program being used to send employees back to school with the employer paying and receiving a tax credit. Just imagine a tax Credit used to bring graduates and small business together Checks and Balances Quarterly reviews a tax credit that would help the middle class to start to grow again. and Jobs!!!!!

“Judging by some of the comments on here, you'd think that being happily married is for thin people only. Another great example of #thinprivilege”

“It's even worse than that. I'm trying to figure out her being overweight makes her a trailer-dwelling teabagger as some have suggested.”

“No, it's just the obvious way to point out that any woman who would do this isn't "showing him," she' only showing her own maladjustment. If she really wanted to "show him," then she would leave him behind and get on with her life.”

Harold Saxon on Apr 12, 2013 at 09:49:52

“Exactly. If I had to have someone who was rail thin, I would have missed out on marrying the love of my life. There's more to a person than the numbers on a scale.”

“Why should I deny myself the pleasure of sex when I can be responsible about it? Why should anyone? And if there should come the day when I a pregnant but there is something wrong, and I need to make one of the most difficult choices a woman can make, I can and I WILL retain the right to choose what is best for me, my body, and my life. It is my life, not yours. My choice, never yours.

No self-centered republican, including you, can take that away from me. This legislation, if signed into law, will be shut down, and if it should to to the supremes, they will rule against it. Period.”

“They sure have a talent for picking the least effective, most dangerous way to "preserve the sanctity of life."

But honestly, I doubt that's what they're all about, because if that were true, then they would ensure that contraception is stupid easy to obtain - for both genders, because that is the only proven effective way to prevent an A.”
